  • When it comes to a camera I carry with me anywhere I go, nothing beats smartphones. But, for my needs, smartphones fail on four aspects:
    - zooming
    - depth of field for isolaing subjects
    -...

  • Thanks Asahi man. I am excited by the possibility to play with my Limited FAs and DAs on a Pentax FF :-)
  • A lot hopes are put in the new Pentax FF body. May be they get something that can compete with the Nikon D810? I do not see the mount of the new big lenses because of the caps. Can we at least be ...
  • Replied in Piece of Junk.
    Many similar complains on many forums have made me stay away from SDM lenses.
  • Replied in If it helps
    On photozone, CA: at f2.8 35mm f2.8 has 0.66px and FA 35 has 0.74. So, the 35Ltd seems better. An example of test with explicit example from real life where you can see that bokeh is not worse and ...
  • Replied in If it helps
    Unfortunately, the difference of sharpness in these lenses depends so much on your sample. Sure my FA 31 is sharper but sharpness of the 35Ltd is enough for me. It is a question of taste. I do not ...
  • Replied in If it helps
    The 35 macro stands out by its build quality, macro ability and lack of PF (I went for it and I recommend it) The 35 f2.4 is cheaper as it is plastic outside and even inside (aspherical element ...
  • My tests are very simple and non rigorous.Of course, I do not claim that one will replace the other, they are different (aperture, bokeh, macro). The purpose is to let me know better what to ...
  • You might look at the kind of result obtained, with the use of such a teleconverter, by Ricehigh on his blog to make his Pentax kit lens become FF compatible on a Canon 5D. You will understand.
  • If one thinks that it is aiming for an FF camera lens compatibility, it might be interesting to see that they did not comment on the FA's and they warned that the teleconverter will not be able to ...
  • FA 31,43 and 77 lenses are not supported?

  • Thanks for your comment justin23. If you can not disable the automatic mode, I will not buy that camera. It is just personal. For me, in such a case Pentax needs to do much better than other brands ...
  • Just a couple of comments. 1- Concerning APS-C vs FF: This is an old subject. I agree that for printing , APS-C is enough. I see however that for brands that have FF cameras, Canon and Nikon, the ...
  • I already got the Sigma 35 for Canon. It was argued better than the Pentax version by the DXO test. The Sigma is a superb lens and I am very  happy with it. It is  very very sharp and I use it for ...
  • I do not think that the Tamron 17-50 covers the FF circle. For me, the fun for the time being in Pentax world is to play with the very compact lenses, and at same time enjoy the feeling of the ...
  • Thanks Mike. I agree with you. But the DA limited 15 and 21 are not compatible with FF. The 18-55 can go  wide and is far from bad. it just need some PP, mainly to improve colors. My  focal length ...
  • Nearly nine months after I have asked people on this forum for help about possible future acquisition of modern Pentax lenses ( http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3490301 ). I thank all those ...
